First week using backpack

Recommended Posts

Well been using the backpack and pole this week, have to say I've poled tops and tradded bottoms . It still doesn't feel right walking away leaving the Windows wet and telling the customer to wait whilst the magic happens!!

It does make you ache though !( forgotten how much you can ache).

Give it 2 weeks and you won't ache

Just your muscles adapting to it

Unless of course you do a load of fascias as then you always ache

It took me weeks to get used to leaving the windows wet. You and your customers will warm to it. Bet you'll want to progress to a bigger system eventually, its addictive

See I've got a van mount and a back pack but finding myself using my back pack more than the main tank. Love the pick it up an go, no ball ache of trailing hose. Use van mount on bigger jobs but find myself really scrimping on water when using it too. Use nearly half as much water than the main tank. Mainly I think it's in my head when I'm using the main tank..... like not turning it off between swapping fronts to back etc and only switching backpack on when pole is fully extended and off as soon as collapsed. Reckon if I could get in the habit could save loads of water
